Air transport is primarily used for passengers and for moving high value, highly perishable goods to market. It provides the means to transport extremely lucrative products such as live lobster to international markets.

The sector represents only approximately 0.2% of Australia’s international freight task, however, it represents around 14.3% of the value.

Meat, fruit and vegetable, medical products and printed matter are New South Wales’ biggest air exports, by both weight and value. Other high value exports include specialist instruments, in particular for medical use.

Primary air imports include spectacles, cameras, appliances, clothes and other high value consumer goods.
